Known as the poor man’s Rolls Royce, here is a late model ‘100’ in striking Burgundy paintwork which was not available on previous P4 models, it also has a fabulous grey leather interior to die for.
The car is the manual transmission version, with the desirable addition of a full length, factory-fitted, (fully functional) Webasto Continental sunroof (colour coded) metal sunvisor and individual, armchair front seats.
The interior is perfect in all respects, the bodywork and chrome are exceptional too. The paintwork has nice shine and has mellowed with the passage of years.
Lots of bills from Rover specialists showing regular maintenance. Used very sparingly in the last 23 years, around 450 miles per annum.
Highly correct and honestly presented this car harkens back to that day in May 1962, when it travelled down the Solihull production line.
Comes with V5, old buff logbook, owner’s toolkit, wad of past MOT’s and tax discs, complete with its original handbooks and full workshop manual.
Seldom found in this original condition. Will surely draw admiration at any Concours or touring event.

The Rover 90 and Rover 105 were replaced by the more powerful 100 announced on 24 October 1959. Its new but similar 2.6 litres (160 cu in) IOE straight-6 engine was a short-stroke version of the P5 3-Litre unit. The 100 could reach 100 mph (161 km/h). The interior was luxurious, with wood and leather accents on traditional English car elements like a curved “Shepherds Crook” handbrake lever. A bench front seat or individual front seats could be ordered. A heater was a standard fitting. Like the smaller 80 version, the 100 was fitted with servo-assisted Girling disc brakes at the front, keeping drum brakes at the rear.
Production ended in 1962, by which time 16,521 had been produced.
